Welcome to A Weekend in Boston, a weekly post about events occurring over the upcoming weekend throughout all of Boston. For events coming up in the North End, see the event calendar. For more information on each event, click on the event title.

What a weird week of weather we’ve had! With almost borderline Winter weather, I think we’re all pretty sick of the cold weather. I mean, I went to the Red Sox game on Tuesday and I had to wear three layers. It’s May! This weekend, it looks like it’s going to warm up a bit, even if it does rain. So let’s hope it stays warm for an enjoyable weekend!
